SVEN (Surveillance Video Entertainment Network) (2006/7)

Real-time computer vision and surveillance system that detects “likely rock stars” among pedestrians and generates music┬ávideos based upon their features as humorous commentary on the subjectivity and malleability of technological systems used for control. SVEN is a public space project, exhibited in both stationary locations and as a performance in a van-based “SVEN Mobile Unit” (video).
